Unhappy No Reverse!!!

99 Ranger 4x4, Ext Cab, Automatic, 4.0 V6, 152,000mi

Yetserday I was backing out of the driveway- made it about 15ft & heard/felt a bang underneath me. I hit the brakes in case I ran over something by accident- all was clear so I tried to continue....no reverse. I was out of the drive enough I could get on the street & buzz around the block testing it out. All gears worked Forward, 4x4 Hi & Lo worked, just no reverse.

SO.... can I just replace a bad gear in an Auto Trans or am I looking at a full tranny replacement? Anything else I should know/look for/tips/tricks/help?

Thanks!

I know in older trannys, the low and reverse gears are in the same clutch pack. You could still go forward, but now reverse. Kinda like your havin. And that requires a rebuild or replacement.

If you have never had any major tranny trouble before, you're fortunate to have got 152K out of yours....

Just like ejg593 the same thing happened to me... I've got a 2001 Explorer Sport Trac
auto tranny w/ overdrive. Sometimes the reverse will work, sometimes it will not.
